S3 Investment Company Issues January 2008 Newsletter Featuring Successful Close of Dalian Chuming Transaction

DANVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - January 15, 2008) - S3 Investment Company, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SIVC), a holding company with two subsidiaries doing business in the China market, today released its January 2008 investor newsletter, which features an article on the recent close of a transaction involving Redwood Capital client Dalian Chuming, a pork processing company with USD $70.4 million in sales in 2006. Energroup Holdings Corporation, a publicly traded Nevada corporation, successfully acquired Dalian Chuming's parent company, and S3's Redwood Capital subsidiary, which provides advisory services for quality China-based companies seeking entrance into the U.S. public markets, acted as an advisor to Dalian Chuming for this acquisition.

A PDF version of the January 2008 newsletter can be viewed on the company's website at http://www.s3investments.com/media/news/.

In addition to reviewing the close of the Dalian Chuming acquisition, the January newsletter also highlights a plan by the S3 Board of Directors to dividend shares of the stock of Redwood Capital's reverse merger clients to S3 shareholders of record at a future date. S3's Board discussed the dividend plan at a December meeting held at the company's corporate offices in Danville, California.

Redwood Capital is working with additional current clients to complete acquisition transactions with U.S. public companies, including Changzhou Haijie Metallurgical Machinery Manufacturing Co. Ltd. ("Haijie"), which had 2007 fiscal year revenues (audited) that exceeded $21.7 million.

"The close of the Dalian Chuming acquisition is a milestone event for Redwood Capital and S3 Investment Company, and we are pleased to utilize the January newsletter to bring further attention to this achievement," commented Jim Bickel, chairman and chief executive officer of S3. "The dividend plan is expected to provide an opportunity to deliver value to S3 shareholders through a percentage of the post-close equity that Redwood Capital is expected to receive from each reverse merger transaction, so we are pleased to review it in the newsletter as well.

"2008 is shaping up as an exciting year for S3 Investment Company, and we look forward to communicating with our shareholders on a regular basis throughout the year," Mr. Bickel added.
